Thank you Carlsbad Police Department for getting this scum off our planet once and for all.
You did a great service in eliminating this scum from harming any additional innocent or involved lives.
I appreciate your effort CPD and I would have definately done exactly the same thing.

People here do not have a clue? Didnt your uncle shoot at cops in Roswell? Didnt your uncle run from cops in a vehicle, going through yards putting innocent people in harm's way? It is sad that your uncle did not get the help he needed or refused it. It is sad he did not consider his child and put that child first to straighten up. It does not matte what he went through because he has been in trouble before and had resources handed to him to get help to improve his life. He failed himself, his daughter, his family, his friends. You need to accept the truth how he was when he was not around his family. What would you be saying if he ran through a yard and killed innocent people or his own family? Would you still be saying the same thing? Face it, he is no longer suffering, causing others to suffer, wasting our tax money, and making his family wonder what is going to come next.

Everyone does make mistakes, not everyone makes mistakes like he did, or to THAT degree of worthlessness. I dont need your pathetic excuses of prison and counseling BS. There is a person who is a counselor who is a convicted murderer on the outs in a different state helping others. What was your uncle's excuse, but I dont want to read any BS, I dont care. Noone is making your uncle out to what he isnt because he showed was he was and that is why he is dead. EXACTLY, just because your uncle was on the wrong path doesnt mean he couldn't change, HE CHOOSE NOT TO CHANGE...that is why he is dead. Your uncle should not have ran AFTER shooting at the cops in Roswell huh? Why cant you figure it out that if he was at home, kicking back, doing something that was positive, instead of RUNNING from the cops, putting people in harm's way you would still be talking to him? Justice will be got for him? Is that a threat? Are you threatening to do a cop in?

He took his OWN chance to change HIS OWN life! I guess it is OK with you if you had or do have a child who was outside and some effin dumbfuqkq drove right through your yard and TOOK a chance on killing your child or actually did kill your child, huh? He screwed up shooting at cops in Roswell BEFORE this in Carlsbad. All you are doing is reverting back to the past when he had a chance and that chance was thrown away. If there is a next life, maybe GOD will allow him to remember his own BS and NOT do it again. The DA already said the shooting was justified.

The reason they shot him was he was actively threatening them with deadly force (i.e. his SUV). As much as I hate to see a life lost this outcome was the best situation as far as the only death was the person creating the problem. When you place a Police Officer in a position to choose their own life or yours bet your money on they will be the one going home. As far as the facts it is public record go get yourself a copy and then you will know the facts. The reports are spot on with my limited first hand knowledge of the situation.

You post so much personal bs on here that you can't even keep up with what you've posted. I remember reading a post in which you admitted to an uncle or cousin selling drugs, but the family never said anything because he "wasn't hurting anyone".

Yes, I do know what I posted. I NEVER said my uncle sold drugs. I said my cousin sold a brand new motorcycle for a bag of weed, what a good deal huh? that is what I wrote. my uncle did not sell drugs. I know all what I write. Why shouldnt I for I do not lie. As for my cousin, I dont give a damn about him and as for my uncle he is clean and has been for years.
